life's what you make it

Hello Lovelies - well where has this week gone to eh? I feel like I am over the jet lag but really I'm not up to speed with everything at home - hence my lack of posts! I took a bit of time out today to do a journal page for the junk journal junkies over on facebook. The theme is lessons and the coloours ivory, purple and gold...I forgot the gold but this is what I came up with.

I started with violet storms infusions and then used distress inks to add the background thru' a clarity stencil and also a stencil girl stencil.

A close up of the part of the page with the face created from the stencil girl stencil.
I added the words and then stamped the indigo blu feather stamps.

My words mean a lot to me on many levels. I know that life can be cruel and hard but if you choose to see the glass as half full things never seem so bad.

Big hugs
